The unexpected death of Master P's daughter Tytyana Miller is heartbreaking. The family is pouring out their hearts about what she meant to them and encouraging others to take mental health seriously. More inside.
UPDATE: Police suspect Tytyana may have died from a drug overdose. It is unclear if it was fentanyl or another drug.
"Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... drug paraphernalia was found at the scene of Tytyana's death, indicating it might have killed her ... but there were no substances present on the scene.
We're told the autopsy has been completed, but toxicology results will take several weeks."
Master P revealed on Monday that his & Sonya Miller's oldest daughter, Tytyana, passed away. She was one of seven of their children together. Without going into major detail, the rapper shared that "Mental illness & substance abuse is a real issue". She was 29, and had appeared on "Growing Up Hip Hop" back in 2016 where she and her family spoke candidly about her addiction and recovery.
It seems as though Master P has confirmed that the heartbreaking ramifications of her addiction were the cause of her death.
The No Limit honcho shared a picture of them together on Tuesday, encouraging others to give flowers to their loved ones while they're here.
Romeo Miller, along with several of their other siblings, also shared heartfelt messages:
And CoCo Miller - Tytyana's cousin and daughter of C-Murder - posted her own message:
Master P appeared on "The Wendy Williams Show" back in 2014 where he spoke about how addiction breaks families, saying:
“I think a lot of people don’t know that it [substance abuse] breaks up a lot of families, it destroys a lot of families. But that’s not my right to say that and I realize that. So like I said, I want to apologize to her for that because I don’t have that right, I’m not God, I’m not perfect. And I realize that whatever she gotta do, she has to figure it out. I can’t change nobody but me, she can change herself,” the “Make Em Say Ugh” rapper continued.
TyTy had previously shared that her parents' divorce was hard on her.
SO incredibly sad. We send our heartfelt condolences and hearts to the entire Miller family during this impossible time.
